Yes, the rumors are true…

Austin and I are expecting! We are due the second week of August. Merry Christmas! I don’t really know how to say this, but like 5 days ago I took a pregnancy test because I was like, I’m pretty sure I’m pregnant, and it was negative. Then 3 days ago I took another pregnancy test because I was having all of these symptoms and I really feel like I’m pregnant, but it was negative. and I was about to start my period, like, today I was supposed to start. usually test results 3 days before are totally accurate, well, I told myself I’m not going to take a test I’m just going to wait to see if I miss my period or whatever but, I took a test and I knew it was going to be negative, but look at that! There is a faint line I think you can kind of see it… anyways… look at that! I’m Pregnant! I think I’m pregnant?! So I haven’t told Austin and my family is all out there because its family night… Anyways… I have all of my siblings here and so tomorrow I am going to go get some more pregnancy tests and hopefully I can surprise Austin, his birthday is on Wednesday, today is Monday. so hopefully I can get everything together and surprise him, but I cannot believe it! If its true, I’m shocked and I’m not actually as scared as I thought I was going to be after miscarrying (stillbirth) at 20 weeks, I thought I was going to be so nervous, but I really am not. I’m excited and I don’t know, its crazy! and I cannot believe that I found out and haven’t told Austin yet. And for some reason I did it while my whole family was here… I don’t even know what I was thinking! but, I just felt like I just knew I was pregnant and I am! so I am probably going to call Carlin first thing in the morning and ask her for ideas and tell my Mom and Jana. I cannot believe it! Anyways, I’ll talk to yall later, Bye! Well, I just went to the store and got more tests! so, I’m going to take one and if its positive then I’m positive that I’m pregnant and I will probably go to my Mom’s today because

    I had a molar pregnancy too….It’s an odd thing, and not very common in Caucasian population, or at least wasn’t 20 years ago. I pray that everything is going well now!!

    I’m so happy for you, this video made me laugh and it made me cry too. You can feel your emotions throughout this video. I lost three babies before I finally got my rainbow baby, my daughter Skylar who’s now 3 weeks old and I’ll always remember those emotions when you’re pregnant after loss. It’s such a roller coaster. I’m praying for you and thinking of you. I am so unbelievably happy for your family! 💕

    When he took off the cap from the stick 😂😂😂
    Congrats 🍼

    I can not stand the Duggar’s. The parents are not very good role models. They kept having kids while the older kids looked after the under ones. Girls were required to wear skirts and boys were required to wear khakis and Polo shirt. Parents would listen in on kids that were “courting” conversations. Would go with them on dates. Josh “touching” his sisters…that is just gross. Anna was stupid to go back to him. I wouldn’t allow it. The list goes on and on.
